Pavlik is a level above Pyatt.

I was thinking more; would Pavliks hittability give Pyatt a chance? I see an exciting scrap either way, though I'd favour Pavlik to stop Pyatt between 7-10. Pyatt was a heavy hitter though, although I admittedly don't rate Pavlik very highly. I'm not certain Hopkins 'ruined'him; just think the 1st Taylor fight might have flattered him.

Pyatt never really carried that power past domestic level. The Jackson and Rosi defeats exposed his limitations, but when motivated, he could fight to a decent standard.

That gets him past a 37 year old Kalambay, but probably not a Pavlik, who clearly has his own limitations, but still has a far better pedigree than Pyatt.

A 37 year old Kalambay aside, Pyatt doesn't have a decent world class win on his record. He's the epitome of a Euro class fighter.

Martinez has the movement, aggression and under-rated power to smash McClellan up.
I doubt Martinez would last 45 seconds.

Possible, but like all classy fighters against McClellan, if you can survive the first four rounds without too much damage, you probably are going to win...

Considering his three losses were to Benn (who would probably be the first to say he wasn't a typical classy fighter), Ralph Ward and Dennis Milton...how many classy fighters fought McClellan, and won?

Yes, McClellan was massively overrated.

Then again, Eubank is even more so. And Benn.

Basically, everyone in the whole history of the sport is over-rated.

BEnn and Eubank get their careers assessed fairly.

G-Man gets elevated due to hypotheticals rather than actual performances.

Yeah, 3 fighters equates to every single fighter.

That's bull - especially in Eubank's case.
